State Sponsorship tracker again!

Guest Adelaide_bound

Me again - tummy did a flip this morning on viewing our ss tracker - its added another line, but we have no idea what (if anything) this means! Wondered if those of you who have gone through it could shed any light:

 

[TABLE=class: application-details]

[TR]

[TD]Nominated Occupation:[/TD]

[TD]Secondary School Teacher[/TD]

[TD][/TD]

[TD][/TD]

[/TR]

[TR]

Application Process

Milestone Date [/TR]

[TD=colspan: 2] Complete Set of Documents Received by Immigration SA Office [/TD]

[TD] 18 Jul 2011 [/TD]

[/TR]

[TR]

[TD=colspan: 2]Application Assessed [/TD]

[TD]Immigration SA is unable to provide an indication of processing times. Keep monitoring this page and your e-mail for the decision on your application.[/TD]

[/TR]

[TR]

[TD=colspan: 2]Application Decision[/TD]

[TD]No Decision yet[/TD]

[/TR]

[TR]

[TD=colspan: 3][/TD]

[/TR]

[/TABLE]

 

The new bit is the 'Application Decision' line (and I'm sure the line above said 'Application being assessed' or something more in present tense than that as well) - that wasn't there yesterday! Does it mean they have finished assesing our paperwork and are now just keeping what they have decided from us until they feel its the right time to tell us?!:unsure: As that would be super super fast - so I can't quite believe that would be right!! Argh, this is awful isn't it!!

 

Thank you to anyone that can put me out of our misery!

LOL we only have one credit card and that has a limit of £200! lol (We don't have credit in the UK, as we don't have credit. Crazy system).

Oh well, will get the OH selling stuff pronto! And keep fingers crossed that a) it indeed comes back in a few days and b) MORE IMPORTANTLY! its positive! (Have convinced myself it will be negative now lol).

Thats really exciting news for you, I hope you get a 'Yes' soon. I would love to hear how you progress as we also applied on-line 12 July and our docs were received 20th July. I'll be over the moon if they are processing application this quickly as it can't come soon enough for me! I just wonder how long the 176 will take to process. I've seen a lot of 176 members on this site who applied earlier this year and a lot of them appear to have been processed and approved within 4-5 months, some eve quicker than that! I turn 40 at the end of Jan and it would be my dream to arrive in Adelaide by then. Good luck and I look forward to hearing how you get on. And beg, borrow or steal to get your money for the visa, don't miss your opportunity. x

Waiting eagerly for your update, the suspense is killing me as I also saw the same status on my application. Are they going to reject and that is why they are so fast?

I'm sure it'll all be fine. The whole process is one of stress and worry, its a huge life changing thing you are doing so of course you are going to be on edge.

I hope n pray they don't reject us, I am so anxious and that's why the negative thoughts are coming in my mind first.

you are right, the process is so stressful and thank for encouraging words.

It has been 10 days since they received the hard copies of documents and today is the 3rd day on that status, I did a research on how long it took in previous months and here are the findings:

 

1) Application made on April: Average is 2 months

2) Application made on May: Average is 1.5 months

3) Application made on June: Average is 4 weeks

 

All the above are from the day of doc received and the quicked one was 9 days. SA has become super fast in processing, fingers crossed for all of us, I am sure we will receive the outcome withing next 2/3 weeks max

Fridays mean little for the next 5 weeks lexbundle lol

 

Grrr - no new news people. I'm not complaining, honest, its just the 'on the bus, off the bus, mode that is making my tummy jump every day and making stay up until at least half past midnight every night just to see if its changed lol (Not that they are probably going to change it at 9am on the dot anyway, so that is soooo silly lol).

 

Let's hope tomorrow is the day....

Adelaide bound I do the same thing every day, and I jump every time an email comes into my blackberry thinking it may just be the one.

      We have recently moved back to Adelaide after 17 years in America. We have a 17 & 19 year old and would love to meet other expats with late teens that have moved to Adelaide.  Let me know if this is you! Thanks Kym

      Hello Forum..
      This topic is mainly for 489 visa applicants, i.e. those in the process of applying or have already applied and received a grant or are / have already landed in SA. 
      Migrating is not easy as it requires a lot of planning, courage to make things work out as desired. Moving with a family with young children is not easy and when the time eventually comes one develops cold feet and is lost in transition as there are load's of things to keep in mind.
      Here I would request all applicants to share their thoughts on some of the best practices, lessons learnt, tips, do's and don't's that are to be followed during:
      the application process  after grant is received pre-landing preparations  post landing  experiences and lessons learnt  
      This would definitely help a lot of migrants who have many thoughts and questions going on in their mind and it would be great to lend our moral support to who ever needs it 
       
      Thank you all and I hope you all take the time to contribute as this forum has been stupendous in helping others!  God bless and all the best to all those who have migrated or planning to migrate.

      Hi Guys,
      Well by God's grace things seem to be progressing well and hopefully if we clear our Health Check then we seem to inch closer in acquiring a 489 Visa  and considering it would take 5 to 6 months i.e. May - June we should have our visa in our hand. If things go as per plan then we intend doing our landing in Sept - Oct 2018 but I have many queries on how to go about it? 
      We are a family of 4 (2 children aged 9 and 4)
      which suburb in Adelaide do we decide to live in and what should be the criteria while choosing a suburb ? (close proximity to the city, schools, public transport etc) considering that there wont be any income when we reach, what is the monthly outgoing should we expect? We plan to rent  2 bedroom apartment / house. can my children get admissions in a government school? ( i know it wont be free as I am on a 489 visa) and what would the fee structure be like? (Grade 6 and Grade 1) what is the best way to scout for jobs? appreciate if anyone can share a template of CV's that are normally followed. are rental properties normally furnished or unfurnished?  can we get a short term rental where we can be flexible to move out once we decide on the suburb we want to live in? I would also appreciate any additional info that you think can be useful, like from your own experiences, lessons learnt, do's and don'ts etc.
       
      Thank you.

      Hi,
      I'm a 29 year old male from Leicester, and I am emigrating to Adelaide in October this year.
      I was just wondering if anyone knew of any Football (soccer) Supporters Clubs in the Adelaide area. In particular any Leicester City supporters?
      My girlfriend and I are moving over and won't really know anybody else in the city, so thought it might be a good idea to see if there any supporters over there.
      Even if you don't happen to support Leicester City, would still be good to meet people who actually like watching proper football and not AFL! (not that there's anything wrong with AFL but I'll be having withdrawal symptoms if I don't watch any football....)
      Any advice or pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
      If you don't like football but would still be interested in meeting up to socialise and make friends, drop us a PM.
      Cheers
      Steve
